Thurlestone & Hope Cove Food & Drink

Although small, the village of Thurlestone has a popular golf course, post office and gastro pub. Welcoming both children and dogs, The Village Inn serves local ales and excellent food. Just a short walk over the headland is South Milton which has a long sandy beach along with a stunningly located beach café, The Beachhouse, serving fresh seafood to eat in or takeaway.

Hope Cove also has some great options for dining out. The Hope and Anchor Inn is a great family and pet-friendly pub with plenty of outdoor seating areas. Just next door is multi-award winning The Cove, which has recently been voted the UK’s Best Independent Craft Beer Bar.

The Lobster Pod Bistro is a unique addition to Hope Cove and overlooks the village and beach, serving fresh and local seafood.
